Katane Palace Hotel
Ranked #12 of 49 Hotels in Catania
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2013

In Sicily for 4 days to explore the Ionian Coast and Mt Etna. Based ourselves in Catania and picked this hotel mainly because of the good price and the parking. (they have their own parking garage but there are limited spaces (8 or so?) so if you go sightseeing and come back late, there may not be a spot for you - in which case you should ask the hotel to help you figure out which side/street to park as there are plenty of rules/signs) The staff are very helpful. We got a room on the 4th floor at the back of the building. The room is spacious, but the carpets look a little worn out. Bed was nice and firm. Bathroom clean. The only bad thing about the room (other than the tired look of the carpets) was the airconditioning - it was not working too well. While we did not have extremely hot weather, I hate to think what the place would like in the middle of summer. We had the balcony doors open at one stage due to the stuffiness of the room, and it resulted in mosquitoes coming in. Breakfast buffet is ok. Ask for coffee (rather than the percolated one provided in the buffet spread) In all I say not a bad place to stay everything considered.

This hotel was fine for a stay of a couple of nights if you are just looking for a clean place to hang your hat. The room was alright - nothing wrong with it at all, but it was rather on the small side and very boring to look at. Breakfast was ample but again boring. I had trouble finding anything I actually wanted to eat. The staff is very cordial and helpful - some have limited English, if that is your only language, so if it is, bring your phrase book. The hotel is well situated though so if I were staying for only a couple of nights I would probably select it again. Also, in my room, the bathroom was huge but as is often the case, the shower was a bit on the challenging side. Finally, the bed was very comfortable and I got a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: I did like my room, 407, because it has a really nice balcony, which the others I could see do not...

Very nice and friendly staff, spacious rooms, free well functioning Internet & parking. The location is pretty good, about 15 min walk to historic centre. All in all a good and price worthy hotel. Did not have a chance to try the breakfast but the food seemed good.

We stayed here for four night and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is lovely, clean, nice and welcoming. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious with good air conditioning. It also has a free mini bar which had bottled water and cans of soft drink it in. The buffet breakfast was good having a variety from fruit to ham, cheese, croissants and cereal. The bar down stairs has an good spread of food. The location is good as its nice and quiet and about a twenty minute walk in to the city centre. Overall this hotel is great value for money I would recommend it to anyone coming to stay in Catania.
